  • Great for families or even just a solo venture. I would highly recommend an outing to enjoy the nature of northeast Arkansas with the scenic lake and beautiful forest. Be sure to snap a picture off th...  more »
  • Several very large and exciting playgrounds for kids, including an excellent splash pad type area. Seriously, you can keep your kids busy all day here if you like. There are many well maintained pavil...  more »
  • Maintained (excellently) by the city *or maybe the county, this is some of the best outdoor recreation for families I've visited. It's well maintained and has a lake. Tent and RV camp sites available,...  more »
  • I've never had a bad experience at this park. We got to get out and enjoy the newly paved walking/biking trail. It has workout spots every 1/4 mile. This is a great addition to the park. It helps keep the foot traffic away from the vehicle traffic.
  • Probably my favorite place in Jonesboro. Huge park filled with beautiful features, like a 3 mile walking path that circles the lake. Also great for dog lovers, with a fenced beach area just for dogs and a fenced pier for dogs to fetch off of. Highly recommended to anyone looking for the best Jonesboro has to offer.
  • Park was large and beautiful. The lake is the center piece and has great fishing. The trails in the forest led to some great seenery
  • Worst camp ground ever. People that run the place run around like gestapo. I got threatened. I was just sitting down and cooking alone. Ruined my day off
  • Huge park with several play areas, walking and hiking trails, atv/motocross trails, tons of fun geocaches, camping, and water park for the kids. And is pet friendly
